Science and Surface conference of June 21st 2018

The conference Science and Surface shows the interest of resorbable materials in our field activity and the existing sophisticated possibilities of analysis to demonstrate its biocompatibility. This presentation take us to the heart of chemistry and of the interpretation of animal testing… Very instructive illustrations enable us to understand this highly scientific approach.


We take advantage of this publication to relay information about Science and Surface, which joined the SARMA Group last July.


Finally, let us remind you that the CETIM, technical centre which organises every 2 years its technical days “Innovate for orthopaedic implants” and actively took part in the organisation of ORTHOMANUFACTURE 2018 conference programme, is here to give you precious advice based on industrial trials.

Enjoy your reading,
